Swanson - Erythritol 100% Pure Natural Sweetener - 454g
Now you can cut back on calories and still satisfy your sweet tooth by making the switch from sugar to 100% Pure Erythritol Sweetener. A great sweetening option for those trying to shed unwanted pounds or anyone looking to cut back on the sugar in their diet, erythritol is a calorie free sugar alcohol (polyol) found in some fruits and fermented foods. It's about 70% as sweet as regular table sugar with a glycemic index of 0-1, which doesn't affect blood sugar levels, so it's great for people on restricted diets. Dentists often recommend it because it can't be used by oral bacteria for nourishment, so it doesn't promote tooth decay. And because it's absorbed primarily in the small intestine rather than the colon, it doesn't cause the intestinal discomfort many experience with other sugar alcohols like xylitol and maltitol.
